Constantinople - End of Empire is the third and final book in Haig Tahta's marvellous trilogy set in and around the city from April 1915 to the end of 1923. It carries forward the characters from the first novel, April 1915, which explored the fateful consequences of the entry by the Ottomans into the Great War, and continued through the second book, Constantinople 1920, revolving round the Greco-Turkish War and reaching its climax in the horrific burning of Smyrna. The starting point of this final part of the trilogy is the day after that catastrophic fire. It follows the same characters and the fate of those forced to flee their ancestral homes, culminating in the demise of the Ottoman Empire and the end of the once great Imperial City.
